Great technique, but not sure about the composition with the going away perspective.

"See ya later!"

Neat shot, though the head is a bit blurred

Thanks, I take the shots as they come. I have captures at every angle to include head on and underneath this bird - just another to add to the gallery.

In regards to the out of focus area, thats the trade off that has to made shooting these fast backyard birds with ambient light. To freeze the motion of this size bird in ambient light with minimal blur I have to shoot at 1/1600. Depending on the available light determines the F stop to keep noise reduced. If light is fluctuating then 2.8 it is - at the sacrifice of depth of field when a capture is made.

The third picture in the group gives an idea of a coming explosion of energy. Great.
